The laugh loft is located in Inglewood’s The Attic above Vegan Street. A delightfully atmospheric restaurant and stage with some of Inglewood’s hottest programming. Laugh Loft is a feel good date night, with the approachability of a local comedy show and the excellence of a downtown event. The event takes place on traditional territories of the Treaty 7 Nations in Southern Alberta, and the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3. We also acknowledge the venue has stairs that limit the participation of disabled community members. We will be launching a schedule of accessible shows so disabled persons can plan to enjoy a night at Laugh Loft.
We feature cutting edge alternative comics who are not frequently seen touting longform stand-up sets in YYC. Combing talent and equity using our vast networks and total immersion in the western Canada performing arts scene, we intend to cultivate an atmosphere to help support Queer/Femme/BIPOC comics. Supportive audience members in the crowd at Laugh Loft help our equitably selected comics tape festival submissions, record albums and write longer TV-ready jokes. Laugh Loft is an elite feeder program to a comic’s next step in their comedy career.
Stand-up comedy at the Laugh Loft is proudly sponsored by Blindman Brewing located in Calgary, AB. Stop in at the Laugh Loft at The Attic for nightly specials on Blindman Brewing beers.
